written in 1957 to mark the centenary of Featherston
... When Featherston was founded in 1857, the Provincial Government was responsible for education and it was under an act passed in 1855 that the frrst public school in Featherston was founded in 1863, with Mr. J. G. Cox as teacher
... In July, 1880 the original school building in Featherston was burnt down. It was on the site in Fox Street opposite the Town Hall, on part of the acre of Education Reserve set aside by the Provincial Government. The story is that the school cleaner was in the habit of using wooden box to hold the ashes from the fireplace. On this occasion she neglected to take the box outside so that, early in the evening, Featherston was called out to see its school totally destroyed. This is one of the earliest memories of some of the oldest inhabitants. Even a well in the school grounds did not enable the school to be saved
... The board acted promptly and on August 25, the tender of Messrs. Riddick & Cadenhead, ?772 10s was accepted and in January, 1881, the new school was opened - a well-built three-roomed building
